Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source Web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite and managed by Mozilla Corporation. Firefox is the second most widely used browser.
To display web pages, Firefox uses the Gecko layout engine, which implements most current web standards in addition to several features that are intended to anticipate likely additions to the standards.
Reviewing 29.0 Beta 9 (Apr 20, 2014)
The very reason I left Opera for Firefox wasn't the change in engine but the lack of customization. A dumbed down interface hurts work flow for those of us who do more than just finger paint our way through browsing and OS's.
and now Firefox is going down that route too!!
I HATE CHROME! I HATE THAT IT'S INFESTING THE WEB AND OTHER BROWSERS!!

Australis is still a Chrome clone which takes customization away. That is exactly as worse as Opera.
Mozilla has lost their tracks!
Reviewing 29.0 Beta 9 (Apr 18, 2014)
Version 1.0 of Firefox was released in Nov 9, 2004. I started using the Beta releases even prior to that. I have been faithful to the Fox, preaching to friends to make the switch and defending it on message boards. That was then and now is now. I am transitioning to Chrome (which I hate) as I speak. The big downfalls of this software:
#1 I don't like the new Australis interface. They're just trying to copy chrome.
#2 (and the main reason I'm leaving Firefox) Apparently the CEO of Mozilla Corp. held the personal opinion that marriage should be between a man and a woman. Despite the fact that the g** employees of mozilla said that he treated them with the utmost respect, the fact that he held this opinion was enough for the organization to force his resignation.
The Libtards who want to control peoples opinions can have the browser, but I will be using another.
Reviewing 29.0 Beta 8 (Apr 15, 2014)
I'm using Mozilla Firefox 29.0b8 on WinVista SP2 & so far so good. I've used each of the beta versions & they've all worked well for me. Significant changes are not always easy, but the browser is performing very smoothly overalll for me; especially considering it's still in beta. I'm getting used to the new appearance, changes, etc. & look forward to the final release. Kudos to Mozilla Firefox developers--keep on keeping on!
